Join Acquira’s in-person business buying workshop
Many new Acquisition Entrepreneurs wonder what stepping into an existing business will actually be like, so we thought we’d give you an opportunity to see for yourself. Workshops are unlocked for every Accelerator Program member who has brought at least one deal to the Investment Committee that matches their investment thesis.
This is your opportunity to get a backstage pass to how we acquire and run a small business. At the workshop, you will be able to tour a business we’ve purchased, network with fellow Acquisition Entrepreneurs, and ask questions of Acquira’s team of acquisition experts.
A prerequisite for attending the workshop is that the Acquisition Entrepreneur has taken at least one deal to the Investment Committee. This ensures that the AE is able to take full advantage of the in-depth discussions during the workshop.
